Thanks to all of you who attended the Major Donor Appreciation Gala and the Raptor Recovery Center Grand Opening this month. It was wonderful to see so many loving and caring people in one place.


As you know, we made a promise to all of you that we would limit our requests for financial support to just twice a year. Once in the spring for a specific and much needed project such as our request for baby season this year, and then at the end of the year to help pay our general operating costs.


Our End-of-the-Year request to continue your support of our non-profit Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue will soon be in your mailbox and/or inbox. This is a very important time of the year for us. We are planning for our future needs and want to ensure that we have the financial support necessary to keep our doors open so we can continue rescuing and rehabilitating local wildlife.


Please help us make a difference. We depend on your financial support to provide these services to the sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife of Sonoma County and appreciate any assistance that you can provide.



Gratefully Yours,

Doris Duncan, Executive Director 

Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue
Registered 501(c)(3) Non Profit.

North American Beaver #922
North American Beaver #922 was orphaned and brought to Wildlife Care Association Incorporated in Sacramento. He was just an infant and was raised in foster care until he was old enough to swim in a full-sized pool. The beaver was then transferred to us so he could use our Aquatic Mammal Pool and hopefully be introduced to the juvenile North American Beaver that was already at our facility. Baby beavers require two years of care before they are ready for release so we were happy to provide a nice pool for them to enjoy for that time. Click here to see more photographs from this month.
Raptor Recovery Center Grand Opening

On Wednesday, October 16, after 3 years of hard work, we finally had the grand opening of our Raptor Recovery Center. County Supervisor David Rabbitt was here as a special guest to help us with the unveiling. Click here to see photographs of the project from sketches to the ribbon cutting.


Major Donor Appreciation Gala 2013
On Thursday, October 3 we had our donors out to the center for food, a tour of our education facility, and an award ceremony. We wanted to thank and recognize the people who have supported us financially and helped us keep our doors open. Click here to read more about this event and see more pictures.
